When we were young
There were always creatures lurking under the bed
A thousand year old dragon lived deep in the lake
And he said don't be afraid
So you dove in

He seemed so sweet and lovely he made you laugh
And made you forget about the rain
Showed you new tricks on guitar
Hidden talents that erases the pain

And don't you know that there's a wolf stalking in sheep's
Clothing tells me he's the real thing
Think what your life would be missing
If you didn't have him to sing
To sing about

Three headed monsters they want your money 
Wanna be in the picture, be your friend
They fill your pool with alligators 
Are they all just jokers or are they cruel

They light up when they see you 
Like there's no where else 
That they'd rather be than by your side
Then they promise you the stars 
But they're really just along for the ride

And don't you know that there's a wolf stalking in sheep's
Clothing tells me he's the real thing
Think what your life would be missing
If you didn't have him to sing
To sing about

Is it the sparkle in their eyes or the knowledge
Of the ways of the world
The way they kiss, 
The way they hold you has made you
Blind to the fangs and the fire

There's a wolf stalking in sheep's
Clothing tells me he's the real thing
Think what your life would be missing
If you didn't have him to sing
To sing about
